Make the Holidays Brighter for Children in Need

The Home for Little Wanderers Announces Ways You Can Help

The Home for Little Wanderers, which provides services to some of our state’s most vulnerable children and families, has many opportunities for the community to make the holidays brighter for those in need:

  • Donate a gift. The Big Wishes Gift Drive – one of the Boston-area’s most beloved holiday toy drives – kicks off December 1 and runs through December 22. Stop by our Toy Room, 161 South Huntington Ave., Jamaica Plain or the community drop-off location nearest you — including all Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture locations and several Coldwell Banker offices — to donate a new and unwrapped gift or gift card. One gift will make a significant difference in the life of a child who would otherwise receive little this holiday season. To fulfill a holiday wish for an individual child, teenager, or family click here.

  • Purchase holiday cards. Spread holiday joy and The Home’s mission by sending your friends, family and co-workers The Home for Little Wanderers’ Charity Holiday Cards. Cards feature artwork by children in some of The Home’s 21 programs and can be personalized with your holiday message or signature.

  • Bid on items in our Online Holiday Auction. The Home’s annual Online Holiday Auction, November 29 – December 13, provides an opportunity to bid on exciting gifts and experiences ranging from celebrity items, sports memorabilia, to overnight escapes for your friends and family. And with every bid, you’ll be supporting a great cause!

On this site you can find many other ways to help the children and families who are served by The Home for Little Wanderers this holiday season. Every effort, no matter how small, will help a child in need.
